    The Tamil Nadu Assembly on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution against a draft central law that regulates the operation of dams in a state constructed by other states. The draft mandates that the dams and reservoirs constructed on rivers within a state shall be owned by the home state where the dams and reservoirs are located. Former chief minister J Jayalalithaa had written to the Centre against a previous version of the draft central Bill. For the present Bill, no opinion was taken from the state government, the resolution says, adding that Tamil Nadu’s rights over the dams constructed and operated by Tamil Nadu in Kerala, namely Mullaiperiyar, Parambikulam, Thoonakadavu, Peruvaripallam will be affected by this bill if it becomes law.
